Courtesy of YouTube, saw the last 2 races - Buenos Aires and Miami, which I thought were much better than the opening few races - maybe the slightly wider streets helped?
Noticed that all the female drivers have now been replaced - I assume the teams were willing to experiment for the first few races, but now it's starting to get bit serious, the women have been dropped - doesn't bode well for women drivers getting into F1.
For all that battery powered cars are meant to be the future - with this Formula E racing meant to showcase that electric doesn't have to mean boring - the racing doesn't seem to get a lot of mention in the media.
Now that I've watched a few races, been trying to think of positives for the racing - can't really think of any. Maybe that it's nice to hear tyre squeal? If you were there, being able to talk to someone without having to scream to be heard?
But lots of negatives -
cars seem like electric go-karts with glorified aero package to make them seem faster/sexier
they're quite fragile, and seem to break too easy if they go over bumps and kerbs too agressively
may be due to lack of noise, but there's no real sensation of speed - not until they have to brake hard for sharp turn after long straight - and they skitter about in the braking zone - would be nice to see what sort of g-forces these cars are capable of
changing cars in the middle of the race - why they didn't just decide to have 2 shorter separate races instead? It's overly confusing when drivers go into pit and swap cars - in nearly every case, the leading drivers seem to end up at the end of the pack when they've changed cars
what's with the the minimum time you have to spend in the pits? Why can't the faster teams capitalise on their slickness of getting their driver out quickly?
Maybe if LFS did a version of the car, we could tell how hard the cars are to drive - seems like when teams get new drivers, they're on the pace almost from the get go. Likely this is because they're professional race drivers, rather than the cars are too easy to drive
Wonder how much aviation fuel is needed to move these cars and teams round the world in a season?
